Question about Dishwashers
I have a practical mind, but no real experience with dishwashers.
This started a few days ago, where the door of the unit kept popping open, so I adjusted the clip and all was fine, while I was in there, I cleaned the filters, and there was a lot of debris. (My guess is this is where the problem began with debris then falling down when i took the filter out) I installed the filter again, and then started an empty cycle and all seemed well. A few cycles down the line and the machine will not start, I try everything to see if there was anything stuck. So I went to the instructions the error light that appeared was to do with the draining. After a night of getting a few bits of debris out, from the intake, I left it until this morning when I opened it up and checked all the pipes, and found a few more bits. (Would the dishwasher have a safety switch to stop the pump from burning itself out?) The few bits the I found were nearly identical diameter to the inside of the pipe (The metal rings that are at the base of a wick of a candle) I also do know the machine has been run without tablets, could the build up of grease cause this?
Any advise would be much appreciated
You didn't say what model you have, most dishwashers have a float switch inside to prevent over filling and subsequent flooding. If this switch is stuck, the dishwasher won't start.
Open the door and look inside the unit. The float should look a little like a mushroom cap. Make sure it travels up and down smoothly. It's usually on the right side closer to the front of the machine.
